Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 085661114X, Hardcover)

Natural historians and botanists have always been fascinated by rare plants and plant hunters have gone out of their way to find them. Today, and in the past, rareness has been related to special habitats and to man's attraction to the environment. In these days of growing concern about nature conservation it becomes an even more important issue.
Peter Marren writes engagingly about the plants, their habitats and the human and biological stories involved. Sponsored by Plant Life, this book is both an education and a delight.
